This Jefferson is a rare find. Only 1100 hours on her Volvo motors and the engine room is pristine. The topsides were just completely painted and the boat shines like new.  She is ready to go cruising and will make her new owners proud to take her to any port. Don't miss this great opportunity! The first serious buyer that looks at this boat will buy it.

"PATRIOT", like all Jeffersons, is a high quality, sturdy Motor Yacht with fantastic woodwork, lots of room and a great layout for extensive cruising, with some custom features many of her cousins would envy. 

On the flybridge she has a great seating layout with good visibility. Her top was built by Pipewelder's and extends forward from the radar arch. The bridge seating consists of a double helm seat, an L-shaped lounge to starboard and a bench to port. The flybridge is fully enclosed with canvas with U-shaped zippered windows. The aft hard top also holds a davit.

Heading down to the aft deck, you find a wet bar with an icemaker, a sink and a Jenn-Air grill. Hard doors to port and starboard provide access to the bow, and a ladder leads down into the cockpit at the stern. The cockpit has two (2) storage hatches in the floor and a door to the swim platform.

Inside the boat the woodwork is a hard to find honey oak. Directly to starboard is the galley (up) that features a side by side Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer above the counter in the aft bulkhead. The counter then wraps around forward with a smooth surface range and a large stainless steel sink. The galley also features a full-size dishwasher, a microwave oven and a trash compactor. A set of bar stools tuck under the forward counter of the galley, giving the owners a convenient breakfast bar. 

Above the galley bar is more cabinet storage and a TV/VCR. Directly forward of the galley is the lower steering station with full controls and electronics, and finally to starboard is an L-shaped sleeper sofa with a hi-lo table.  The salon is bright and open with windows all around.

The Master Stateroom is aft and features a custom king size bed, a private head with stall shower, a great vanity and closet space and laundry facilities.

Moving forward of the salon is a huge pantry/workroom to starboard and a guest stateroom to port with over/under double berths and more closet space.

The forward stateroom holds a centerline queen size bed, with its own access to the head with stall shower to starboard.

Electrical & Mechanical

The engine room is also impressive, housing the twin Volvo diesels, a 15 Kw main generator, an 8 Kw second generator, oil change system and four (4) fuel tanks ( (2) 320 gallon mains and (2) 75 gallon saddle) with site gauges and shut-offs. The size of the engine room is fantastic, giving easy access to all systems and both sides of the engines.
